Possible to open door from cockpit to cargo hold?

Hi there, i was wondering if theres a key combo to open the door behind the middle crew member?

 

In lots of vids on youtube of the mi8 the door seems to be left open and can see through length of craft. Is this possible in the game or will it be added when coming out of beta?

 

Would be cool to see though back and out side windows from cockpit to really appreciate the size and modeled interior of the mi8.

under option (System) Open/Close Cargo Doors: LAlt+LCtrl+C

 

Edit: okay, you mean the door between Cockpit and cargo bay....not that i know.

The door commands for the Mi-8 are:

 

Open/close cargo doors = LALT + LCTRL +C

Open/close left blister = LCTRL + C

Open/close right blister = LSHIFT + C

Open/close left door = LCTRL +LSHIFT + C

Maybe if/when we get a rear gunner the cargo compartment will also be part of the internal model so we can open/close the door. It would do much for immersion to be able to look back into the rear of the helicopter and get an better perception of its size.

Many years after this was originally posted, seems like the right place to ask if the doors now work in 2020...

 

I have mapped the key bindings from the list in DCS options menu - the blisters open/close but nothing else?

You can open the same door, the rear ones and the two on the cabin compartiment

 

... that is good news but how do you do this please?

 

I have tried pressing the keys when the helicopter is ready for take-off (i.e rotor/systems running etc) but nothing happens?

I've just checked the default key combos given above in post #4 (never changed them) in Caucasus cold start mission and they work as advertized. Side and back doors open/close allright.

 

Are you sure you mapped the keys in Mi-8 "sim" and not "game" section of the controls?

Going back to the original question, though... there is a keybinding for 'Open/close cockpit door', but it doesn't seem to do anything.

 

Just went to bed so can't test myself for a while, but if this is true there is one thing I like to try. The flight engineer isn't present on his seat when having selected a sling cargo. He is keeping an eye on the sling through the hole in the floor in the compartment. Maybe this keybinding have an effect in this particular situation, when the flight engineer isn't blocking the door?

I don't believe it, but have never tried it (actually didn't know the keybinding existed).

^ But it does, on the left side behind the cockpit, the ones where machine gun can be installed.

 

I understand these are the doors (apart from clamshell ones) Slicker was asking about.

Good point, thanks but checked just in case, and my keys are mapped in Mi-8 'Sim'

 

Do your doors operate as soon as cold start mission loads or do you have to switch things on in the cockpit ... battery etc?

 

Maybe the hinges one my doors just need a bit of WD40 :megalol:

No, they work right after loading. Maybe something gets fudged if default keyboard assignments are changed, or joystick button mapping doesn't work correctly? Haven't checked that, I only tested default keyboard commands as above.

Good point... doing some more tests later tonight because all doors operated correctly last night but, on reflection, instead of using an 'instant action' mission, I was flying one of my own 'custom' missions?

This may sound stupid, but just in case: neither door can be operated while there is a gun mounted to it.

 

Had to learn this when I loaded the gunners with open Cargo Doors. Poor gunners had to sit out in the Air for the rest of the flight holding on to that Door for his Live.
